Ragnar, Bjorn and two men go to Kattegat to destroy the winter supplies to Jarl Borg to force him to leave the village. Then Lagherta and Bjorn and their men join forces with Ragnar, Rollo and their men and together they defeat Jarl Borg that flees. Meanwhile King Ecbert protects Athelston to learn the pagan culture and beliefs. Ragnar wants to stay with Auslag and Lagherta since he loves both women but Lagherta decides to come back to her husband. Now Bjorn must make another choice.

"Answers in Blood" is another great episode of "Vikings". Unfortunately Jarl Borg survives and now there are many issues in the story. What will happen to Athelston and his religious beliefs is maybe the most important question. How will King Horit and his son survive in an enemy territory? When will Lagherta return to the show? My vote is eight.
